Sleep apnea affects an estimated 22 million Americans and nearly 1 billion people worldwide, and 80% of moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea cases are thought to go undiagnosed. It’s no wonder why—sleep apnea presents itself only when we’re asleep, and episodes of gasping or choking which indicate sleep apnea are nearly always forgotten in the grogginess of sleep.

The impact of sleep
Let’s be honest: when was the last time you woke up without an alarm clock and felt awesome? And when was the last time you made it through a whole day without feeling groggy and underslept (or without being alarmingly over-caffeinated)?
1 in 3 American adults report that they are not getting enough sleep, and as it turns out, when we don't sleep, it’s really bad for us. Sleeping less than six or seven hours a night wreaks havoc on all aspects of our wellness. Carried out over a long period of time, these negative effects are only compounded.
When you are sleep deprived, you:
The leaves are changing, the mornings are frostier, and there’s pumpkin spice everything everywhere you look—which can only mean that the end of daylight saving time (also mistakenly known as daylight savings time) is right around the corner. This year, DST comes to an end on Sunday, November 3rd at 2 a.m., which is when our clocks will “fall backwards” and go back an hour. With this, we gain an extra hour of sleep that night.
You’re probably looking forward to this extra bit of shut-eye, and rightly so—an hour of sleep is a very powerful thing! Raising your nightly amount of sleep from just six to a full seven hours actually rewards you with a number of noticeable physical and mental benefits. There is perhaps no greater demonstration of what an hour of sleep can do than the
Hey there! How did you wake up this morning? Were you up and at ‘em as soon as the first alarm buzzed? Or did you have to hit snooze just once (okay—maybe a couple times)?
Now, maybe it felt good to snuggle inside your blankets for a few minutes more, but, chances are, hitting snooze didn’t change how tired you were overall. As it turns out, hitting the snooze button isn’t really the quick fix that we want it to be. Let’s take a look at why snoozing fails to perform as advertised, as well as some better ways to wake up in the morning:
Broken bits of sleep
Sleep after your first alarm tends to be really shoddy in quality—you hit snooze, sleep a few minutes, hit snooze, sleep a few minutes, hit snooze…it’s very fragmented sleep
For most of us, getting a good night’s sleep comes down to simply making the right choices and setting sleep as a high priority in our lives. For a large number of adults in the U.S., though (an estimated 50-70 million to be exact), the poor quality of their sleep stems from a sleep disorder beyond their control.
It's an unfortunate fact that so many of those with a disorder go without a diagnosis because they don’t realize that they have a problem, or they simply believe that there’s no treatment for their particular issue. Some disorders can have a very substantial impact on the amount of sleep that someone is able to get (and thus on their health overall), so it is extremely important that they catch the disorder early on and begin treatment.
These are just a few of the most common sleep disorders that are good for everyone to re
Families share everything. From their genes down to their sense of humor, children take their cues from their parents. But there’s one personal trait that we may not realize is affecting our families. You guessed it—our sleep habits.
In order for your household to function at its best, sleep has to become a family priority. Let’s talk about the importance of sleep for your family and discuss how you can improve it for everyone.
How much sleep should everyone be getting?
For adults, the recommended amount of nightly sleep is seven to nine hours. For children, it depends on their stage of development. Here’s a breakdown of the number of hours of sleep required per day, including naps:
It’s that time of year again: back to school. If you’re like most of us, you’re wondering where the summer went. Whether you’re celebrating having your kids out of the house or feeling a bit wistful about it (or both!), the issue remains: your kid needs to get into a school-year routine. And one of the most difficult part of that routine to re-establish? Sleep.
Yes, the transition from the bedtime-doesn’t-matter mode of summer to the homework-plus-soccer-and-school-starts-at-seven mode of the school year can be rough. Kids aren’t used to the new schedule, they miss their summer freedom, and on top of that, the stress of school-year obligations can make falling asleep more difficult than it normally is. When you consider that quality sleep is a key factor in academic performance for school-age students, this is a big issue.
Thankfully, there are a number of wa
There are a number of questions that an interviewer typically asks a potential candidate for a position.
- “What relevant experience do you have?”
- “Do you work better collaboratively or on your own?”
- “What are your biggest strengths and weaknesses?"
An increasing amount of data indicates that it would behoove hiring managers to add another question to their standard list: how well do you sleep?
At first glance, it may not seem as relevant as a question about their skill set or a gap in their resume. But when it comes to the quality of work that employers can expect day in and day out, sleep quality matters. A lot.
